This Simple Sketch Art came about from my endless quest to fill wall space and shelves in my house, I am constantly looking for inspiration online (Pinterest, Craftgawker, whatever!). I’m finding myself more and more drawn to pencil drawings / sketches. I just love their simplicity and the variety and interest that they add to any vignette. Unfortunately, for me, I’ve always been awful at drawing. So, I did what any self-respecting DIYer would do: googled “learn how to draw”.
There were several tutorials online, all showing the various steps on how to start and finish a drawing. I started practicing…. but then paused. Maybe it was laziness, or maybe it was a resurgence of my tendency to not finish things, but I found that I actually liked my unfinished drawing. The simple, initial sketch that only gave a rudimentary shape to my my subject. It just looked cool. So I stopped there … roughly three minutes into my drawing lesson. I’m sure eventually I’ll learn to draw properly, but I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty happy with this first attempt!
My Simple Sketch Art drawing is a horse (in case you couldn’t tell!). I chose that because that’s what my lesson was focused on, but this can certainly be adapted to any subject quite easily.
